Is the new filter taking air from the hot part of the engine compartment rather than the side duct vent? That wouldn't be a good idea.
Haha - good eye. Their box’s have nice thick cardboard for a cold garage floor .My mind is in cycling mode and noticed the Huffy box first.
It will get plenty of fresh air there... not as good as the enclosed stock box, but the same as other aftermarket kits. The fender vent will feed air directly to it, the bottom of the cone aligns with the stock cutout too. Plus it’s far from exhaust and in an area with lots of fresh air (if that makes sense).Is the new filter taking air from the hot part of the engine compartment rather than the side duct vent?

They are excellent quality filters. Better than K&N IMO. As I mentioned above, used them for years, in daily drivers too. It’s heavier, more rubber on both ends, and has a thicker filter element than the EC filter.How did you figure out that part 2302 was the right filter (I do not see an ALFA option on the Green Filter website)? Closest fit/measurements from the EC filter? It certainly looks handsome next to the EC one, which seems to have gotten mangled. Thanks.
Used Green filters in the past also. Good quality. I've used the Twister version. Comes with a top notch alu housing (for rain/heat protection)I’ve owned 2 4c’s, both with the Eurocompulsion intake. Not trying to bash them, but I never liked how tight the filter fit to the maf housing. I really had to force it on. The prev owner of my current car clearly wrecked the filter trying to get it on.
So, I went with a simple option - a green filter (great brand, excellent quality, IMO - used them many times) attached to the stock maf and intake tube. $75, remove the stock air box and stick this filter on. Easy. Same performance as the kits out there.
It slid on the maf housing with minimal effort, no soap or oil or forcing needed. A rain sock can be purchased separately - I had it from the EC kit. I also used some zip ties to secure the tube.
